Boniface Mwangi’s witty tip to former Safaricom boss on how to realize ‘death wish’ goes viral

An advice from human rights activist Boniface Mwangi to former Safaricom CEO Michael Joseph on the “easiest way to die in Kenya” has stirred social media.

Mwangi was responding to a tweet that had quoted Joseph saying he would “like to die in Kenya.”

But its his witty suggestion advising Joseph to participate in a peaceful protest that caught the attention of Kenyans on Twitter.

The activist, who is a renowned public mobilizer in street protests, was presumably alluding to the risk that come with participating in streets protests in Kenya.

Mwangi, himself, has found himself on the wrong side of the law countless times in his infamous run ins with the authorities, earning himself the reputation of perhaps being Kenya’s most a defiant human rights activist.

In a recent demonstration this year Mr Mwangi suffered an injury while leading a demo to protest the killing of protesters by police.

He suffered a burn mark on his chest after an anti-police officer lobbed a tear-gas canister straight at him.
